MTT uses GITEX to advocate mobile for all
Mobile Trust Telecommunication stresses need for encrypted comms
Mobile Trust Telecommunication (MTT) is looking to make encrypted mobile communications accessible to all, with the launch of its new Stealthphone solutions. The company is promoting its range of hardware and software encryption for all types of device at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK, to raise awareness of the need for more secure communications.
Anatoly Klepov, General Director of MTT, said that as more and more communications go mobile, there is a growing need for hardware based encryption, but security is still focused on software.
“The era of software-based security has passed, but 95% of security on mobile phones is software, which is why hackers make such a fantastic profit every year,” he says.
For this reason, MTT has spent the last five years, and $30 million to create the world’s first encrypted smartphone. MTT has developed a hardware encryption device which can connect to any phone using Bluetooth, to protect voice, email and SMS. The solution is also available in a software version which can be installed on a range of platforms. In total, MTT has developed 23 different products for encryption.
The target market for Stealthphone will be government and military, Klepov says, as well as corporate customers and individuals, who want enhanced protection.
